Substrat und Inkohärenz
(Metaphysics/Ontology, Englisch)

Substrata or propertyless particulars, according to the substratum theorist, exemplify properties. This account is accused of incoherence; indeed, the proposition "propertyless particulars have properties" is contradictory. There are at least three options to escape the accusation. There is one option which qualifies the sense of "propertyless particulars"; another option which eliminates "propertyless particulars"; and another option which neither qualifies the sense nor eliminates the subject matter, but eliminates the predicate "have properties". I show that neither of these options meet the accusation. The substratum theorist should therefore devise other options.
